THE Kendal Avenue Post Office, in Redbridge, Southampton, is to close temporarily so it can be transformed into a new ‘main’ style open-plan branch with significantly longer opening hours.

It will shut for refurbishment on Tuesday, 26 February at 5.30pm with the new-look branch opening on Monday, March 18, at 9pm.

During this period of refurbishment the nearest Post Offices are Totton Post Office, 41 Rumbridge Street and Marchwood Post Office, Village Centre, Marchwood.
